Origin of city name

  • Three villages, Towa Village, Hikonari Village, and Waseda Village, merged.・ ・ ・ The character of "three"
  • This area has long been called.・ ・ ・ Character of "town"

From the above, it was named Misato.


Place name

There are towns and large characters in Misato City.The residential addressing system is only in Shinmisato LaLa City XNUMX-XNUMX-chome and Satsukidaira XNUMX-XNUMX-chome, and lot numbers are rearranged in other towns.

Waseda district
Waseda Village until the merger of the three villages in 1956.The 3 large characters that made up the village (the old village before the enforcement of the town and village system in 15) have been taken over by the local name.
  • Tanaka Shinden
  • Zenma
  • Koyabori
  • Gotani
  • Tango
  • Handa
  • Nizo
  • Komagata
  • Minamihasunuma
  • Sasazuka
  • Ohiroto
  • Iwanoki
  • Motai
  • Kobo
  • Yanaka
  • Misato XNUMX-XNUMX-chome
  • Waseda Ichi --- XNUMX-chome
  • Shin Misato Lala City XNUMX-XNUMX-chome
Hikosei district
Hikonari Village until the merger of the three villages in 1956.The 3 large characters that made up the village (the old village before the enforcement of the town and village system in 15) have been taken over by the local name.
  • Uneme Nitta
  • Uneme XNUMX-chome
  • Hikoito Ichi-XNUMX-chome
  • Hikooto XNUMX-XNUMX chome
  • Hikonari Ichi-XNUMX-chome
  • Hikonari
  • Kamihikona
  • Hikokawado XNUMX-XNUMX chome

  • Hanawada

Of the above, "Hikonari" without "Chome" is a narrow district that remained without the town name and lot number arrangement after the establishment of "Hikonari 1-5 Chome". The same applies to Hikono, Hikokura, Kamiguchi, Banshomen, Hikosawa, and Hikoe without "chome".Although Hikoito 3-chome and Hikooto 3-chome formally exist, since they are part of the Misato housing complex site, the actual address display is "Hikonari 3-chome", which is the address of the housing complex.[11]..However, the address display of Misato Hikari Kindergarten is "Hikoito 3-chome".
Towa district
The district that belonged to the former Towa village. In 1943, Togasaki Village and Yagisato Village merged to form Towa Village, and in 1956 Towa Village, Hikonari Village, and Waseda Village merged to form Misato Village.

In the former Togasaki village, there were nine large characters: Togasaki, Sakaigi, Sakai, 9, Naganuma, Maekawa, Maeya, Yorimaki, and Kamakura.Of these, Togasaki, Yomaki, and Kamakura still exist, and the others were abolished due to the reorganization of town names and lot numbers in 1982 (currently: Eiichi-XNUMX-chome, etc.).In addition, in Oaza Kamakura, only the old excelave in the Oaza Yori winding area remains.
In the former Yagisato village, there were 12 large characters: Ichisuke, Yagisato, Shimo Nitta, Komukai, Hinokuchi, Nagatoro, Tokushima, Ippongi, Kubei, Yokobori, Takasu, and Ozen.Of these, Ichisuke still exists, and the others were abolished due to the reorganization of town names and lot numbers in 1982 (currently Takano XNUMX-XNUMX-chome, etc.).
